The Dixon Veterans Memorial Arch celebrated its 100th birthday this summer. In anticipation of welcoming soldiers home from World War I, this arch was erected in 1919. A June 12, 1919 parade of soldiers marched on Galena Avenue through it after they were discharged from Camp Grant in Rockford. Dixon serves as the seat of Lee County and is the boyhood home of President Ronald Reagan.
